Have you checked your default programs for certain file extensions?  You will want to make sure that .txt, and .html are set to notepad.exe.

the source code will be displayed as text.

Check your .txt file association.

If you scroll down the list, you will see all of the file extensions.  You are looking for:

.txt

Glad it worked!

For users who rely on Excel, it is common that during testing/working with various files that an extension is inadvertently associated to the wrong program.

For example, if you were to right-click a .txt file and use "Open With" to open it in Excel (instead of using the import procedure form within Excel) then it is possible inadvertently associate the file to Excel.
